The Race To Be Number One On “TRL” Hits A New Low

Oct 30th, 2006 // 3 Comments

The bubble-emo outfit All-American Rejects is nothing if not Internet-savvy, what with videos that have ripped off Postsecret and the “Lindsay Lohan doesn’t change facial expressions” meme. With a star on the wane and a lead singer who’s still conventionally attractive, they’ve decided to go for broke: they’ve vowed actual, real nudity if their new video snags the top spot on TRL. We sure hope Google is watching, as this might be the first true test of their new baby‘s power.

    ew. ouch. ew.

    now, if they’d promised to get naked and dance on treadmills, then maybe.

    I’m reminded of Love, Actually, where Bill Nighy’s character promises to perform his single naked if it makes it to number one. Funny how life imitates art, innit?
    (Except the art made more sense by having the offer come from much older, more desperate performer.)

    My mind is pulling disgusted faces, but my ovaries are dancing behind its back.
